to welcome two experts. terry schmidt and steve clemens. -- gary schmidt and steve clemons. did his nomination surprise you? >guest: it did not. when you began looking at the transition from leon panetta and asking what kind of person who would have in there, someone who would command competency and stature. he seemed an obvious choice. host: news from "the new york times." pointing out to republicans who called him and appeasers based on what he said in a rock. he voted for the rock were but then turned against that conflict. the word appeasers seems to be pretty strong. -- iraq, but then turned aginst that conflict. the word "appeaser" seems to e pretde pretty strong. guest: the most important thing that happened during the war was the search. he voted against the surge. he called the worst mistake since the vietnam. when you're talking about putting somebody as secretary of defense and has such strong views, and wrong views, that is something that will be asking him. host: we're going to share with you some of the statements by senator haggle -- hagel. also, a number of speeches
confirmation. with me now steve clemens, editor at large for "atlantic" and has written things in support of hagel's nomination to the defense department and dan seymour and foreign policy adviser. gentlemen, welcome to you both. i couldn't think of two better people to do this and you both agreed. so, thank you. dan, i want to start with you, but i want to lay out this issue on israel and iran and i want to put up, we put together a few charts. sort of fuel for supporters and opponents when it comes to hagel and iran and israel. voted against iran/libya sanks in 2001 and blocked sanctions bills in 2008. he was in support of key nonproliferation bills having to do with sanctioning iran on nuclear weapons. as for israel, he didn't sign some letters of support of israel in the past. anti-hamas bill and voted for aid for israel as a senator. dan, why would you look at this record and say it's decidedly mixed for somebody who want somebody in there who wants nothing but always on the side of whatever israel wants the united states to do, he certainly is not a full fledged opponent of israel,
was not granted pay -- steve harrison says an hour twitter page -- the national journal has a piece available online focusing on at this and other issues that the president will be facing in his second term. the headline -- seven democratic senators in conservative states facing tough reelection bids in 2014 said that the president has already had some unpleasant stumbling blocks within his own party. and gun control, the white house is calculating that it will be exceedingly difficult to pass broad measures. that is according to the new york times. rockefeller announced his retirement on friday, making his seat vulnerable for the first time since 1959. this story is available at nationaljournal.com. emery joins us from michigan, the independent line. host: good morning. i just wanted to know, how does the american people think it is totally obama's galt we are in debt? we had things going on such as the war that caused so much money. that -- that cost so much money. we have jets, we have so much put out to protect us. how could people be so upset, wondering if obama will be able to go throug
are a low-cost iphone for emerging markets. shanghai evening news claimed the apple marketing chief steve shiller says the future for apple isn't cheap phones. apple hasn't responded to my request to clarify what shiller said and frankly i don't trust language that's been translated and retranslated. the future of apple isn't cheap ipads but that doesn't stop them from coming out with ipad minis. you can bet they have worked on a phone that would meet their standards and avoid cannibalizing the high-end iphones. if they release one, that's a bigger story. >> apple stock, a buy or a sell? the stock hovering around $500 a share. still well below its all-time high, so is it a buy or not? on the technical side of the story ennis tanner with me with riskreversal.com and on the tech fundamental side, jeff, we'll start with you. >> growth rates in china, it's huge, but i think there's a bigger story here in apple, and we can talk the numbers to death, but there's a transition going on. over the last six years apple has been this hyper growth company with an investor base that included everybody,
we quoted on friday, steve clemens was on our show today, quote, there seems to be an effort by israel and supporters over and over to continue to run resolutions to say, how much do you love me america? do you love me today, do you love me tomorrow and do you love me again. i am supportive of israel but i'm not going to zero game between israel and neighbors, but also have vital national security relationships with the united states let's bring in our panel. steve hayes, juan williams and charles krauthammer. steve? >> i think the quote you read is offensive. its clownish view of what people have been arguing both with respect to protecting national security but the threat that iranian poses to the united states of america. i think one of the areas in which hagel has shown himself to be president obama's left, and he has in a variety of different places, is the question of iran. hagel ruled out a military strike would be unreasonable, it would be foolish to do that. something that the obama administration despite fact i think they have taken a rather accommodating and patien
nebraska senator bob kerrey and "the atlantic's" steve clemons. senator, it's always an honor to speak with you. the president today said chuck hagel is an american patriot when he announced the nomination of the former senator from your state to head the pentagon. let's take a listen. >> chuck hagel is the leader that our troops deserve. he is an american patriot. he enlisted in the army and volunteered for vietnam. to this day he bears the scars and shrapnel for battles he fought in our name. we see a decorated combat veteran of character and strength. they see one of their own. most importantly, chuck knows war is not an abstraction. he understands that sending young americans to fight and bleed in the dirt and mud, that's something we only do when it's absolutely necessary. >> well, senator hagel paid tribute to the men and women in uniform at the announcement today. let's listen to the nominee himself. >> mr. president, i am grateful for this opportunity to serve our country again and especially its men and women in uniform and their families. these are people that give so much to
nominee. u.s. economics editor for "the economist," and senior economics reporter steve leaseman. steve, first to you. what are the markets saying? what is jack lew's reputation in wall street and what do you see coming forward with debt negotiations? >> i think this appointment is being taken advisedly in the sense that it's a kind of wait and see. you know, from my perspective, having covered more or less -- more or less degrees, seven of the past treasury secretaries, jack lew does come to the table with a bio that perhaps has less independence in it than any treasury secretary i can remember. robert rubin, hailing from goldman sachs, salary summers was a renowned economist. paul o'neil from alcoa. there's nothing on lew's resume that suggests any measure of independence. markets want a little bit of independence from their treasury secretary. that said, if jack lew's appointment can, in fact, result in some kind of longer term budget deal affixed to entitlements, tax reform, corporate and individual that i think markets would be happy to give up that independence. the troubling is i
john boehner replayed the whole thing to the "wall street journal" steve moore. the president says the country does not have a spending problem. told boehner to his face at the white house that it is all fiction. spending isn't the problem. healthcare is. get that under control the president reportedly says pretty much everything else is under control. we will talk to steve moore in a is second about what boehner said after this. it might explain this. nancy pelosi pushing for still more revenues this week and republicans demanding dollar for dollar tax hikes to spending cuts. what makes you think we will make any progress wielding this out of control when we are not. steve, why less won't be more. steve this is fascinating. tell me exactly what went down. >> i did the interview with speaker boehner on friday over in the capitol and one of the first things that he told me in the meeting. i said what was the most interesting thing and shocking thing about the five weeks of negotiations in the oval office with president obama? and he said at one point the president turned to him and
steve schmidt. he is a republican senior strategist from the mccain/palin ticket in '08, msnbc analyst. steve, thank you for being here. good to see you. >> good to see you, rachel. happy new year. >> you too. i know you are a supporter of gun rights, steve. i know you are also a political realist. how do you assess the strength of the effort to try to come up with some form of reform agenda after newtown and after tucson? >> look, i think that the ad that you showed is obviously enormously compelling. it's emotional. the whole country was traumatized by this unspeakable tragedy that took place in newtown, and the tragedies that took place before it. and sadly, the tragedies that are going to take place next. and we don't know where those will be. but the nra is a fearsome political lobby. members particularly in the republican party are terrified of being primaried. this issue is often covered through a partisan prism when it should be looked at through a regional prism. if you talk about democrats in the south, in the mountain west, and places like north dakota, and you saw the new s
steve as well about your deep knowledge of afghanistan and pakistan and the other bordering states. >> this is one that has taken a back burner. we are not that far removed from the election. the election was about by and large nothing more than the economy and which side could do it better. as a result almost every other issue gets pushed to the side, but we have, you know -- there are realtime tables in place in afghanistan about what we have pledged to do, what we will do. you talk about chuck hagel. what chuck hagel's role in all of that, if et wants to be secretary of defense. it's a complicated issue, and it's more complicated politically, andrea, simply because the american public -- this happened in iraq. it's clearly happening in afghanistan. the american public has tired of our involvement in these conflicts. this is not something new. this is something that has been long and coming. if you look at the history in polling at least of when that happens, public opinion almost never sort of sways back up to all of a sudden be supportive and think this was a battle worth fight
. this is a long time coming. this is a very long time coming. joining us now is steve clemons from "the washington note" and the new america foundation. steve writes at "the atlantic magazine" where he is washington editor at large. thank you so much for being here. >> my pleasure, rachel. >> president obama's announcement today that u.s. troops are going to change mission, move to a support role this spring. we had known that it was possible maybe as early as this next summer before today. do we know why the president felt he could accelerate the pace today and do it by this spring? >> well, i think that the president has looked at the -- he just won election. he has looked at the political tea leaves in the united states, and there is not very much support for this. and i think he is making a very important strategic judgment that the timing, that you've got american men and women still on the front line. they're still going to be in danger, but there is nothing strategically achievable in the spring that is different than what is strategically achievable in the summer or fall. and i think for t
, really cold outside. >> yeah. steve paulson joins us now. what helped prevent the predicted record cold? >> the north wind. >> so strange. >> it'll be colder i think on sunday morning. that looks to be the coldest but morning lows, some took a while. overnight lows 24 to 44, frost and freeze warnings out for about another hour. temperatures 29 at napa, fairfield was 26, now 30 telling me a little breeze picked up. 26 not far from livermore but oakland 41, the city 44 and 47 half moon bay with a north wind of 25 miles an hour. san jose 37, san rafael down to 34. with that north breeze it'll be cold. we will have to -- upper 40s, low 50s. there is a possibility maybe of some scattered showers today. more than today. you can see the system on the north coast. >> time is now 7:03. we have developing news coming in from the north bay. a teen who just turned 17 years oldo was shot to death just hours ago. claudine wong is at the apartment complex. >> reporter: they are still out here. if you look behind me you can see where they set up on the 300 block of the drake. looks like they will b
like this before. which one is it? joining us now is steve kornacki, host of "the cycle." steve, it's good to see you. empty threats? or are we in uncharted obstruction territory? >> i don't think it's uncharted yet. i'm curious to see how it plays out. i think in terms of the republicans unifying in opposition, it's more likely in the case of hagel than lew, but we'll see how that plays out. i don't pick up yet in either case on the threat of what could kill either of these nominations that would be a filibuster there is a sense in hagel, even if he had all the republicans, all 45 of them say they are against him, there will be still be up or down. so maybe 55-45, maybe one democrat will peel off. the longer term threat here is this. what we've already experienced in the last four years is that the republicans in some very sort of troubling ways have changed the behavior enormous for congressional parties. you look at how they have treated the debt ceiling. they tried to claim that as a legitimate bargaining tool. you look what the senate republicans have down with the filibuster,
't tough enough or they're not viewed as tough enough to handle the pentagon. and steve clemens on "rachel d maddow" made a point that swayed me. >> the democrats that came in many of them that came in with president obama and also part of the concern that americans don't trust democrats to deploy power to be forceful in the world have adopted in many of the institutions they have built in four to five to six years a pentagon hugging strategy of not wanting to reform or cut because of the fear that they will be considered vietnam democrats, anti-military democrats. >> and i think there's some truth to that and i do think in this time where we are going to be looking at cutting the pentagon's budget and scaling back our military to a certain extent, i do think maybe republican would be better positioned to do that and wouldn't be, especially one who's served in the vietnam war wouldn't be subject to the criticisms in the same way a democrat could be. >> part of obama's calculus. >> i will say i would like to see some women picked for some positions. maybe obama needs to borrow some of the
coming, a long time coming, a very long time coming. joining us now is steve clemens from the new america foundation. he writes for "atlantic" magazine, washington editor at large. thank you for being here. >> my pleasure, rachel. >> president obama's announcement that troops will move to a support role this spring, we had known it was possible maybe as early as this next summer before today, do we know why the president felt he could accelerate the pace today and do it by this spring? >> i think that the president looked at the tea leaves in the united states, not much support for this. making a strategic judgment that the timing that you have american men and women still on the front line, going to still in danger, but nothing strate c strategically achievable in the spring that is different than what is strategically achievable in the summer or fall. for those people who thought barack obama would acquiesce to permanent war, they are totally wrong this is a very important day. i was re-reading "the drift: the unmooring of american military power," written by one rachel mad yao today,
has new details on steve cohen. melissa: you are always controversial. charlie: here is what is interesting about steve cohen. in february, as they see faces a window of redemptions. here is what we know. fac officials are screaming to prevent massive reductions. they are currently contacting and holding one-on-one meetings with investors. they are essentially saying that despite everything, the investigation -- a wells notice has been given. despite all of that, they think that steve cohen we'll be okay. they may get a large fine. they think they are facing charges. they will not be indicted. it will not be a criminal case. keep your money with us. the bottom line is this, you do not know until february. investors essentially hate this type of controversy. some very large investors have put holds on the stocks. i can also tell you, steve cohen and these guys are very aggressive. they are out there trying to get large investors to stay with it. they will come out after the story. these are different one-on-one meetings. this is crisis mode. they think there is a very good lik
is fueling a counterfeit boom. abc's steve osunsami has more. >> reporter: it looks real. this $100 bill is funny money and production is booming. federal authorities are saying that in most cases the crooks are using everyday office equipment. scanners, printers and printer ink. >> it is easier and it is faster today because of copiers and sophistication in different type of inking systems. >> reporter: in atlanta they busted a graphic artist known as the printer. prosecutors say that heath kellogg, his father and four other men produced more than $1 million in counterfeit bills. using a printer to print out fake 50s. printing the front of the bill on one sheet. back of the bill on another. before carefully gluing it all together. there are a flood of "how-to" guides on the internet. in november, rhode island police arrested this man who learned how to make a chemical soup to rub off ink on $5, turning them into fake 100s. he maintained he is innocent. >> if the consumer takes the time to match the watermark and knows it doesn't match the portrait, they would know something was wrong wi
, there's something rather unusual about the second term shake-up. missing the shake-up. >>> i'm steve kornacki. have heard about this $2 trillion coin? >>> i'm s.e. cupp. did you know that the 14-billion-year history of the universe is found inside a rock. i thought it was in steve's brain. >>> i'm toure. it's the year of lincoln. surprising me a little bit but more locks than a hardware store. >> i haven't seen one of the movies and if you haven't either, don't be embarrassed. you were probably too busy watching "the cycle." >>> loyal lew. the president flushing out the second term cabinet today promoting the chief of staff jack lew to run the treasury. >> so for all of the talk out there about deficit reduction, making sure our books
, editorial board member and writer for the "wall street journal." steve is joining us now. yes man for the president? what's wrong with that? >> well, there's nothing really wrong with that in terms of -- look, the treasury secretary probably should reflect the yesterdays and philosophy of the president. and i agree with the others on your unanimously it's very likely that he's -- your unanimously it's very likely that he's going to be confirmed. we were critical for a couple of reasons. one, look, we kind of were hoping this would be a new start for the president. that the second term might be a departure from some of the policies of the first term. this suggests that it's going to be more of the same. when you heard the discussion about how many republicans really just don't get along with this guy, they don't agree with his philosophy, they think he's really hard to deal with in negotiation, i think that could prestage real fights to come. i wanted to mention one other point if i could, wolf. one of the things that bothers me about the president's cabinet in his first term and t
room, given the overflow, already, of flu patients. steve brown joins us live from chicago with more, steve? >> reporter: yeah, on monday we had 11 different hospitals in illinois, megyn, get put on bypass, means essentially all nonemergency cases deemed for a period of time not to go to this particular hospital and ambulance companies and emt's are alerted to that. those bypass last between four and 12 hours each, but this is an intermittent sort of situation that happens about 14 times a year, generally speaking, to hospitals, but it's happened to an awful lot of them all at once now and a lot of that is attributed to the flu. does that mean that if someone has the flu, cough, cold, a bad case they should go to the e.r. or check into the hospital? no, say doctors, unless it's coupled with something else. >> the best thing is, except for those that are young, healthy, not having other symptoms, not having any respiratory difficulties or not getting dehydrated, vomiting, uncontrolled, lightheadedness, and treat yourself with aggressive hydration, rest. >> reporter: now, the largest
and steve moore. steve, let's go to you first. based on our conversations this week, you like this deal a little bit more than i do. why don't you make the west case for doing it for the deal? >> this was for republicans eat your spinach moment. i don't see any other alternative to what happened. look, i think this is rampant deal for so many reasons. i think it's for the economy, my point is that i don't think republicans have much choice. you talk to john boehner and for mitch mcconnell the president would not budge one inch on cutting spending. he had no interests in doing that. the republicans believe, i think they were probably right, they had gone into 2013 without this tax issue resolved, they would be pummeled day after day. i hate the deal but i think it was the least
. an anthropologist searching for answers and now cycling back here to share the incredible experiences. >>> i'm steve kornacki, finding out who gave me the flu. really. it's a sick new app. >>> all that plus what kids, kesha and congress have common. we're all about making connections here on "the cycle." all right. it's just 13 days to the inauguration and if you thought president obama's first term was polarizing, just wait for the second. for instance, his first term was polarizing despite obama's efforts. his second could be polarizing because of them. need proof? already the president's putting up his dukes nominating chuck hagel to run the pentagon. he slammed the door on debt ceiling negotiations demanding congress raise it without drama and says he's ready to be tough on gun control but remember the president doesn't have to worry about re-election ever again. so expect his second term agenda to look a lot like this. full of overtures to the base which criticized him over the last four years for caving to republicans. to help decipher what to expect in the next four years, we start with nbc's
. hold on. and then the story i read on the front page of the wall street journal, steve, it did make the arrangement that he did run the two divisions, one of which got into serious trouble in 2007, 2008. he wasn't the guy making the investment decisions that really caused such severe heartburn. i red read that in the wall street journal today. >> well, he was in charge of the operation and it lost money. whether he was making specific calls on investments, don't know. but you don't look at that reference and say, gee, this really makes him qualified to be the treasury secretary for the united states. >> all right. let's let ali weigh in. >> steve, good to see you. i'm not sure anyone who would nominate for treasury secretary that the editorial of the wall street editorial would but who knows. your history is one of a tax fighter. you've been a tax fighter forever. you're founder of the club for growth. >> right. >> you've got the same dna as grover norquist and pat toomey and guys like this. jack lew understands budgets. the fact of the matter is, this is a guy that can speak the ri
to hearing from them. let me introduce them briefly. steve gluckstern is the chairman of each resolution partners, a firm developed proposal to reduce market principles using eminent domain and is in discussion with municipal governments across the country. prior to work with mrp, steve cofounded alternative asset range that firms is a trust company llc and z partners as well as the specialty financial reinsurer center. congressman brad miller is a recently retired representative from north carolina's 13th district. during this fight turns -- five terms in the house, congressman miller served as a leading champion for consumers in the fight against predatory mortgage lending and servicing practices. tom deutsch is the executive director of the american securitization forum, an association for investors, issuers and stakeholders in the securities industry has opposed the call for eminent domain for marketers. previously tom was the associate at cadwallader llp and mickey mouse in llp, where he worked on finance offerings and residential mortgage securitizations. jim carr is a senior polic
in one by representative steve stockman outside of houston that would remove the gun free zones that have been so much like a magnet to invite mass murderers into zones where they know nobody else will be able to shoot back. and that i think is where the debate is likely to shift. are we really better off when we say no defense is a good defense? >> chris: i want to put up an ad that gun control advocates have started running against new democratic senator heidi hei dcamp of north dakota when she said some of the president's ideas about gun control are extreme. will that work. can ms. tanden and their allies and they have suggested they can drive a wedge between people like you, the heads of the nra and some of their members who may not be as hardline as you guys are on gun controls? >> i think the senator from north dakota is reflecting the views of the people that sent her to washington. so i don't think there is much room to drive any wedge. i think she is representing them rather faithfully and i think it is noteworthy that a democrat who would be under a lot of pressure within their
, and even the new deal -- >> bob, here is the problem with what you're saying -- >> steve, you'll agree with me on this, i'm sure. >> here is the problem, we agree we should get rid of all of these loopholes. this is interesting, erin, that when mitt romney talked about this in the campaign of putting a cap on these deductions, it was the democrats, people like robert reich, maybe not you personally, but people of your philosophy who said we can't do that. here's the point -- >> we actually do believe -- >> what? >> i don't know why democrats aren't in favor of putting a cap on those deductions. i'm saying if we're going to get something done on this, erin, what is going to have to happen is democrats are going to have to agree to reduce the tax rates in exchange for getting rid of the loopholes. >> or we're going to have to raise taxes on everyone, as npr ran the numbers. if you raise the numbers on 8% of the middle class, you raise more money than by taxes millionaires. >> there the question is how do you define the beginning and middle of the middle class. is it $75,000 or $110,000 a
